The River Aire from the new road bridge at Kirkstall Forge
The River Aire from the new road bridge at Kirkstall Forge
Taken on the day that Kirkstall Forge Station opened, and 2 or 3 days after the access road was opened to the public.
This picture from the bridge for the access road shows the river is 2 or 3 metres below the level of the road. There are no signs yet with a road name.
The new metal structure is a support for one of several platforms that will be built over the river.
Kirkstall Forge Station, now open
Kirkstall Forge Station officially opened on Sunday 19th June 2016, although the site was accessible at least 2 days earlier. The station is served by 1 train per hour each way towards Leeds and Bradford, which should increase as demand increases. It is intended to serve offices and residential buildings which will be built on the Kirkstall Forge site, and has a substantial car park for park-and-ride passengers. The journey time to Leeds station is 8 minutes, considerably better than the scheduled time by bus. For those of us living on this side of Horsforth it offers a significantly quicker journey than going to the city centre by car.
